Authority in Christ 2

July 17th, 2009

Several years ago I did a post called “Authority in Christ“. Here is a cut and paste…

“As I dwelt on this I started to think about the authority we have as Christians. I thought about how the Bible talks about Jesus having all authority on heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18) and how as Christians Christ lives in us (Galatians 2:20). So in saying that we have Christ’s authority to take a stand.

As I was working through this I asked God to help me understand this more. He gave me a picture of me standing with all of heaven standing behind me. Jesus was next to me and legions upon legions of mighty Angels were standing behind me backing me up. This thought blew my mind. It was almost like if you want to mess with me, you have to take on these guys too!”

Since this post I have shared this idea with people when they were about to step out in faith and undertake new ministries. I share it to remind them that although they feel alone in the new venture, all the resources of heaven are behind them protecting, guiding, leading and supplying.

Recently the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia has been showing an advert on TV which helps to show this image God gave me in action. It is of a little girl going out into the surf alone. However she has all the resources of the Surf Life Saving Australia behind her to keep her safe. This is just like the image God showed me.

If you are stepping out into a new ministry or making a major life change, just know that if you call Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour, then all of heaven is behind you to bring God’s call on your life to fruition. ALL of heaven is cheering you on, guiding, leading, supplying and protecting.

Take a look at the video below and you will get a glimpse of what I mean…

God Bless,
